Slowing Down

After 5 weeks at my bank job, I quit.  It was something that had been on my mind after the first painful week of sitting around with not much to do, and also why I should have trusted my gut before accepting the job.  In the long run I think it will be for the best.  It's hard to explain, but the best way is it just wasn't the right fit.  I realized quickly it wasn't accounting enough for me and after having awesome flexibility at JCCS, being confined to banking structure was really hard.  The best part was realizing all these things and knowing then what I was looking for.

Also after being home for the summer and getting into some routines I also realized how content I am to slow down. Its really been an interesting journey so far.

I did however have something lined up before I quit and I am really excited about it. I am really hoping it works out how we are envisioning it and will be the start of many good things to come.

This week we are gearing up for my sister's wedding and another round of cake baking.  A little colder for this wedding than the last but I am sure we will be fine!

Go Wildcats!!!!

I am slacking in the posting department but that is mostly because I have been doing some pondering as of late.  My new job isn't quite working out like I had hoped and its hard deciding what to do about it.  On the bright side, it has made me consider what I want out of my work, the type of environment, the people, the flexibility and just some good realization of how I want to live out my life.  I think I will be stepping outside my comfort box, but am hopeful it will be a good step.  A shout out to JP for being an awesome shoulder and sounding board.

Willa has been loving her new school more than ever as of late.  They have taken some fun field trips as of late and now they go to a gymnastics center every other week on top of her weekly class so she is in heaven.  Her sign language skills are also expanding.  Her and B seem to add to it everyday and she loves spelling words.

Fall is finally here and it is my favorite season of all.  I do love my sweaters.  I have already decided to Thankful November again on this blog in hopes it will jump start my posting again.
